Publisher's Summary

This sexy new book from New York Times best-selling author Tess Oliver may lead to a serious book hangover!
Sometimes one good dose of trouble could turn your life around, put you on the right path. But I'd taken the opposite side of the forked road and headed off looking for even more trouble, like a junkie constantly searching for the next high. Never would I have guessed that turn would lead me to her. I couldn't stop thinking about her. She was an angel, a hardcore, bonafide angel, and in her short life she'd already had a taste of hell.
Despair. Heartbreak. Silence. That was all I'd grown to know, until he showed up next door. The handsome, tattooed stranger had the kind of eyes that were hard to look away from, and he gazed at me as if we'd been friends or even lovers in a different life. He looked at me as if he knew me, and suddenly I had this flash of feeling as if I was right where I was supposed to be.
Hard Core is a full-length, standalone novel.
Contains mature content. Intended for listeners 18+

I really enjoyed this, I was a great listen and finished at a pretty decent pace. A little bit fast then I expected but overall I thought it was great.

The narration with Lauren was good she sounds great but I do believe she wasn't perfect for Jacey. The voice was to breathy and sexy for a timid Jacey with a tragic past, even though shes upbeat and confident, she's guarded. And Laurens voice didn't fit the bill. Overall her performance was spot on, no mistakes, easy to follow along to, and she definitely had me laughing on some scenes.

The narration with Marcio was perfect for Ledger, yes ill admit in the beginning I felt like he didn't fit ledgers character but after a few chapters in his POV I started to enjoy it more and connect him with his character. Definitely spot on, is to listen to, and easy to follow along. I didnt get lost nor lose interest.

The story by itself was AMAZING! Id love more of Jacey & Ledger but I believe it ended perfectly. Jaceys big secret was powerful and sad I connected with her character and felt for her. Ledgers story was outrageous I was wondering why and how he knew so much about her if he had been in prison for 2 years and has never met her before. But now that I know I couldn't believe it and wish he had said something sooner about it. I hate James by the way and he's absolutely crazy.

I recommend this Audio book to listeners who love a good romance thats passion filled with suspense and mystery with add heartstring tugging scenes.

They eventually do connect and then the pain and secrets begin to be revealed and how do they handle it...
It is a book that moves along.. no boredom in it and I loved the make narrator’s voice and the girl’s grew on me. The man did the make voices and the girl the female...both very well done
I’ve read books by this author before..love stories that have rough patches but the endings are happy. Give it a shot
